Marder?

Hey Chadperkins, I don't know if this will help.
I'm not what you would call a German armor buff (enthusiast)
But... this is a Marder interior... but what model, is beyond me
so here are two interior shots, I'll keep looking for some more.





Hope this helps

Thanks, I've got these pics but the 38t is a bit different than the Marder III M inside and out. That's the problem, much of my references are from different variants and things so I really don't have much from this actual vehicle to go on.

Gday Chad,

Here are some shots of the Saumur Marder 3M. I took these 'blind' shooting through the open drivers' hatch. Of course, I didnt get a shot of the open hatch! If you get desperate i'll scan some shots from the Nuts & Bolts book (if you dont already have it)



















And some shots of one of mine (that didnt make it into the book)







Hope these help

Sam

I've got your book by the way, it's a nice read. Thanks for the pics, doesn't show the hatch but the rest of them are awesome. Thanks again.

that headset you have hanging on the wall, where does the cable for that go?

The headphones plug into the intercom harness on the drivers' side internal wall

Thanks to Sam's nice pics I've added some things to dress it up a bit. The transmission was pretty good out of the box as I said but after seeing the pics, the gear lever was way too small (almost nonexistent) so I fashioned a larger one with the end of a tamiya shovel handle I had laying around with the ball on the end. The fluid fill box (or whatever is is) on the opposite side at the back was completely missing so I thought I'd add this detail as it is visible through the hatch. The only other addition was the cable around the bell housing at the rear of the transmission. This is obviously oversized but I couldn't resist the look. That's the smallest wire I have wrapped around a guitar string so it's as small as I can get it and I like it. It doesn't go anywhere but the end cannot be seen through the hatch.

After that, I used Sam's pic of the pedals to throw somthing together and here's what I came up with.

Also added the mounts for the driver's cushion, reworked the radio box and added the 45 degree brackets on either side of the trasmission support cross member. I think I'm done with the interior of this section save for the roof and interior of the hood which I'm working on now. I feel like I'm wasting a lot of time inside of here but it's all in fun.



I've been giving some thought to the engine compartment and I have no idea how I'm going to build it separately and then attach the fuel lines after the fact. It's going to be quite a task. If anyone has any brilliant ideas I'd love to hear them. That's all for now......

Sam, I do have a question I'd like to ask you since you are somewhat of an authority on these things .... What colors do you recommend for the interior of the driver's compartment and engine compartment? I was thinking of ivory up front and green for the transmission and engine compartment but I'm basing that on what others have done. Is the floor in yours painting green also? Anyway, any insight into color choices would be very helpful.
